A woman died after falling 30 feet on Friday afternoon while hiking in the Columbia River Gorge, outside Portland, Oregon, authorities said.

The woman, who was not immediately identified, was hiking with a group of friends near Wisendanger Falls, a part of the federal park better known for nearby Multnomah Falls, when she fell shortly after 1 p.m., local fire departments and sheriffs said. .

Bystanders performed CPR as Corbett Fire Department rescuers and Multnomah County Sheriffs Office deputies responded and then walked 2.1 miles from a trailhead to the site of the fall, the fire department said in a statement.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene, officials said. The sheriff’s office said she suffered a head injury.

The county search and rescue team was dispatched to help locate the woman’s body.

The sheriff’s department said the hikers had used Larch Mountain Trail #441, which leads from the mountain’s top waterfalls, including Wahkeena and Multnomah.

The woman’s identity would be released after her next of kin were notified, the sheriff’s office said.

The area is about 30 miles east of Portland.

The National Park Service says Multnomah Falls is the most visited natural recreation spot in the Pacific Northwest.
